This is a 1967, Silvertone solid body, single pickup electric bass guitar made by Danelectro of Neptune New Jersey. It's one of the last Danelectro-made Silvertone bass or six-string guitars offered before Danelectro went out of business. It has one lipstick pickup and a brown burst finish. This bass guitar is 100% original and includes the original, hard-shell case. Both the guitar and case are in excellent condition. The neck is straight and all the electronics work properly. It does have a few nicks and scratches but overall it's incredibly clean. It will appreciated by both collectors and players.Description from VintageSilvertones.com
